Employee handbooks continue to be an important tool to communicate with employees, provide them with important information about your organization, and ensure you have provided them with the required information. In 2021, in order to increase the effectiveness of your employment policies, you will have to: 1) Enhance your business, operational, and legal intelligence to ensure you have identified the changing external and internal factors that affect your policies; 2) Increase internal stakeholder participation in the handbook development process to obtain greater employee commitment and operational alignment; 3) Establish new metrics to assess handbook policy and practices performance and measure the achievement of organization goals; and 4) Implement internal controls that identify and alert management when employee handbook process failures occur.
This webinar reviews current employee handbook policies and discusses how your organization can reduce the gap between policy issuance and effective implementation.
Employers are increasingly required to review and update important sections of their handbooks. This is particularly true in states that have enacted new employment laws and regulations that require employers’ response and notification.
In this environment, employee handbooks must not only address key business and talent management issues, they must also provide proper notice and ensure that all critical and legally required handbook policies and the practices are effectively implemented.
